“Corona runs away from the vaccine, not from placing posters of praise on foreign roads, Manish Sisodia tweeted
Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday said that erecting posters of praise in foreign countries is in no way going to help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Manish Sisodia tweeted on his official Twitter handle and said that the Central government wants people to feel happy for the mere posters and not vaccines.
Manish Sisodia said this while quoting a tweet, which had both the pictures – posters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a BBC graphic comparing the availability of vaccines in various countries including Canada and India.
“Corona runs away from the vaccine, not from placing posters of praise on foreign roads. Canada makes sense, not us,” Sisodia wrote on Twitter in Hindi.
He further said, “That’s why Canadian residents have five times the vaccine than their population, and here in our… people are happy to be shown posters in Canada.”
On Monday, the Delhi’s Deputy CM said that just three days’ worth of Coronavirus vaccines are left for the 18-44 age group in the national capital, and the Centre has declined to provide any more vaccines this month.
Sisodia quoted a letter received from the government, saying that Delhi is going to get 3,83,000 doses for 45+ age group in May, but there will be no more vaccines for people aged 18 to 44 years.
The deputy chief minister said that if the Centre does not have vaccinations, the capital will be forced to close vaccination centres.
The AAP-led Delhi administration, on the other hand, has written to the Centre requesting more Covid-19 vaccines.
